Winfield - Worsted

6 items left

We’ve replaced our discontinued Staccato worsted weight with Winfield, a lofty 2-ply with great stitch definition. This yarn is 100% Canadian, made with a dorset-base down type wool sourced from Ontario, spun in New Brunswick, and hand-dyed in our Montreal studio. Winfield has a beautifully “toothy” texture and comes in 16 rich and vibrant shades, making it a perfect choice for colourwork.

You can read more about the origins of this yarn here.


Featured Pattern: Frost and Twilight Mitts

Two pairs of mittens, adult pair is dark blue with natural contrast, child's pair has colours reversed

Originally designed in our Staccato yarn, this mitten pattern works beautifully with Winfield. They are a quick knit and if you reverse the colours you should be able to get at least two pairs of mittens out of two skeins of Winfield.

Circle R Livestock: A Family Farm

Sheep in barn at Circle R Livestock

One of our big goals for Sweet Paprika this year was to source a new line of Canadian wool yarns. We started contacting farms and mills last January, researching options, connecting with farmers, and collecting samples. Eventually we settled on working with wool from Circle R Livestock, a family farm in southern Ontario operated by Romy and Ryan Schill and their children.
